31 Today

Album: @#%&*! Smilers (2008)
  • Thirty-one today
    What a thing to say
    Drinking Guinness in the afternoon
    Taking shelter in the black cocoon

    [Chorus: ]
    I thought my life would be different somehow
    I thought my life would be better by now
    I thought my life would be different somehow
    I thought my life would be better by now
    But it's not, and I don't know where to turn

    Called some guy I knew
    Had a drink or two
    And we fumbled as the day grew dark
    I pretended that I felt a spark

    [Chorus: ]
    No, it's not, and I don't know where to turn
    No, it's not, and I don't know where to turn

    Easter comes and goes
    Maybe Jesus knows
    So you roll on with the best you can
    Getting loaded, watching CNN

    [Chorus: ]
    No, it's not, and I don't know where to turn
    No, it's not, and I don't know where to turn
    No, it's not, and I don't know Writer/s: Aimee Mann
